The tree, which was recently felled at Belfast City Cemetery in west Belfast, appears to show the face of a bearded man resembling Jesus on the remaining stump beside a grave.
A video (below) of the mysterious image has been posted to YouTube, with the message: "An image has appeared on a tree stump in Belfast's City Cemetery.
"Upon close inspection, its hard to tell just how this image got there.
"Recently City Council employees trimmed trees in the cemetery, and as a result this phenomenon appeared."
